Glendinning Pro Pilot S Joystick Marine Control System

Glendinning ProPilot S Joystick Marine Control System

The ProPilot S is an optional accessory that can be added to most existing and any new Glendinning control systems on boats with inboard propulsion and bow / stern thrusters.

The ProPilot S system is suitable for installation on all inboard power boats with bow thrusters (or bow and stern thrusters), and sailboats with both bow and stern thrusters fitted. An integrated thruster control keypad provides the capability to control the thrusters directly without the need for a separate thruster panel.

Simple & Intuitive Handling

By combining the available thrust of the boats engine and thruster(s) the Glendinning ProPilot system allows simple and intuitive boat handling even in the most unfavorable winds or currents.

Docking Made Easy

Maneuvering and docking is made easy using the single joystick control. By simply moving or rotating the ProPilot joystick, the engine and thrusters will activate to effortlessly move the boat in the required direction.

Intuitive Installation

Installation is extremely easy since the ProPilot joystick can be added to existing helm stations control heads with a short CANbus cable, and connected to the helm station thruster controls with plug in connectors for any brand or type of bow/stern thruster. The joystick function is customized (balanced) for each vessel using an easy to use PC program.
